is named the city of love in Italy.

There’s something extremely romantic and charming about Venice.

Imagine strolling down alleyways, eating authentic gelato while discovering the originality of the city. Whether it’s the Basilica di San Marco located in the heart of the Piazza San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, or the Ponte dei Sospiri, there is so much history in the stunning architecture seen on this magical little island but it can be a little overwhelming. Like the large crowds of people.

So I would recommend putting away your map and phone. This was mine and my partner Josh's favourite part, wandering the streets of the city not knowing where we were going. This gave us the opportunity to take our time to really enjoy and discover the hidden beauties of Venice that cannot be found in the books. You will find yourself away from the crowds, enjoying all of the pleasures Venice has to give you. Something you must do when travelling to Venice is the gondola ride. It’s a bit expensive but worth it. This is one of the best ways to see the city from a different perspective as well.

Visiting Venice you either love it or hate it and Josh and I absolutely fell in love with it. 

And here are a few pictures of the beautiful architecture in Venice:
